Something Long And Complicated visits Geysir, Iceland 🇮🇸

In this article I would like to show you some of the best places in Iceland to visit based on ring road adventures. Here is a guide that should serve as a starting point for those who want to circumnavigate the Golden Circle or the Golden Circle. Sources: 9, 15

Start at Kerio Crater Lake and end up in Thingvellir National Park and you will be glad to know that there are a lot of beautiful views of the Golden Circle and the rest of Iceland and you will be able to take some truly unique shots of Iceland. If you choose the Golden Circle, there is a beautiful back street that takes you through the northern part of Reykjavik, from the town of Keflavik to Gullfoss National Park. Sources: 10, 18

The underground ice cathedral that the Icelandic weather has created is a must – and a particular favourite of mine. With the snowmobile you can go to the glaciers and experience a pretty impressive environment. With an area of about 950kms square and an area half occupied by volcanoes, it is one of the largest geysers in the world with a total volume of about 1,000 killems. Although there are no spat-out geysers, a more impressive thermal area is Namafjall in northern Iceland, just a few miles from the ring road that surrounds most of the island nation. Sources: 3, 6

Due to its proximity to Reykjavik, it is an easy way to see some of Iceland’s most popular highlights. In the other part of the zoo is the so-called Family Park, where families are together in the heart of Reykavík. Sources: 16, 20

If you want to spend an extra day in Iceland, I strongly recommend you to visit the town of Vik, as you will find many interesting places along the way. The Golden Circle is one of the best places in Reykjavik if you are on a short trip to the north of Iceland or even a day trip. This place is just fantastic and you can visit it morning, afternoon, evening and evening with a great view over the city. Sources: 23

Don’t let the popularity of the Golden Circle stop you from experiencing all the fantastic sights in this part of Iceland, it is still one of my favourite places in Iceland. Sources: 8

The Hvita River is located in the southwest of Iceland and this geothermal valley is located in the Golden Circle. Let’s get back to the second place that should be on your bucket list, a second place to visit along the spectacular GoldenCircle route. Strokkur geyser, located at the foot of the mountain at an altitude of 2,000 metres, is one of Iceland’s most famous and largest geysers. Sources: 11, 17, 19, 22

It is within easy reach of Reykjavik and you can easily rent a car in Iceland or drive there to discover the aforementioned Thingvellir National Park. The geysers are usually grouped together for a day trip and are all accessible by car, but not all. Sources: 7, 12

If you don’t have a car on your trip to Iceland and want to visit all the popular stops of the Golden Circle, you will need to arrange a guided tour. If you want to see all the sights or do something adventurous for the day, we recommend visiting the geysers in Thingvellir National Park and the other geothermal sites in Reykjavik if you are looking for a day trip with a great view – and the opportunity for something different. Sources: 8, 13

And last but not least, you should take a trip to the impressive and beautiful Gullfoss waterfall in southern Iceland. It is unlike any other waterfall you can see in Iceland, and it has something of a peaceful landscape that makes it a nice stop on the Golden Circle route. Sources: 8, 17

Iceland is home to colorful mountains, many of which meander through lava trails and crystal clear lakes and have soothing hot springs. Iceland’s geothermal and volcanic activities have produced some of the most spectacular geysers in the world, as well as many other amazing waterfalls. Geysers form in unique places where there is a mixture of geological activity and water accumulation only underground. Sources: 2, 7, 14

One of the most impressive is the Bebe Geyser, a natural geothermal pool just a 50-minute drive from Reykjavik. Although bubbling pools can be found all over the country, one of the most popular and popular attractions is probably the geyser itself, as it is the only place in Iceland where you can easily observe a bubbling hot spring geyser. Sources: 0, 13, 22

The Golden Circle sightseeing tour attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, with its rippling hot springs, foaming waterfalls and spectacular views. The most visited geothermal sight is Iceland’s first known geyser, the Keflavik Geothermal Park, just a few kilometres from Reykjavik. Sources: 1, 3

It has been dormant since 1916, when the Great Geyser (Stori Geyir) suddenly stopped spewing. An earthquake in southern Iceland has caused a change in geothermal range and created several new hot springs. South of the park is the ancient GeYSir, which is being replaced by the new geothermal park Keflavik, the second largest in Iceland and the oldest in Europe. Iceland’s first geyser, Althe, was held until 1844, when the Icelandic parliament moved to its capital Reykjavik and has been active there ever since. Sources: 4, 5, 14, 21
